Ok I have right now.

Intel 2600K: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115070

Asus P8Z68-V Pro: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131920

Acer 24' AL2416W: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4351365

Evga GTX 480 SC in SLI: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130551

And I want to upgrade the Monitor to the.

Auria 27' Eq276W: http://www.microcenter.com/product/384780/EQ276W_27_IPS_LED_Monitor

I will be keeping the CPU as 2600K but I want to replace the video cards to.

MSI GTX 680 Lightning in SLI: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127693

or Titan in SLI: http://www.nvidia.com/titan-graphics-card

So what I really would like to know is do you think I need to upgrade my motherboard to something else. Or do you think it will be fine to run everything even if I get Titans in SLI?

Please dont bring money into this I know what all these things cost and I know I could go cheaper, But this is the things I want.

Please help if you can. And ask me anything you want.

Not much point in upgrading the motherboard. The only option would be to go to a Z77 board, but that's not going to help much because your CPU is still only going to support PCIe 2.0, and PCIe 3.0 is really all you are missing with what you have now.

OK Quick question, I have the 2600k running @ 4.5ghz at 1.3 stays under 60c never pushed it more but I think I could pull 5.0ghz out of this. but I stopped because I liked the max temp at high 50c-60c Now would I see any real + to getting a 3770k? and what is the average ghz people are getting with them.? I have a custom water loop just for CPU.
